Expand shortened URLs (e.g. TinyURL) with LongURL
Expands links to any short URL, like TinyURL, bit.ly, etc. using the LongURL service (longurl.org). Operates in the background without altering the text or style of anchors — you won’t see it working, but it’s there!
The options page displays the current cache of URLs and services. If anything goes wrong, you can clear them, but you don’t need to worry about them otherwise.
µMatrix: A point-and-click matrix-based firewall, with many privacy-enhancing tools. For advanced users.
µMatrix put you in full control of where your browser is allowed to connect, what type of data it is allowed to download, and what it is allowed to execute. Nobody else decides for you: You choose. You are in full control of your privacy.
Out of the box, µMatrix works in relax block-all/allow-exceptionally mode, meaning web sites which require 3rd-party scripts are likely to be “broken”. With two clicks, µMatrix can be set to work in allow-all/block-exceptionally mode, which generally will not break web sites.
Make the web faster, more private, and more secure.
Disconnect lets you visualize and block the invisible websites that track you. Load the pages you go to 44% faster. Stop tracking by thousands of third-party sites.
Disconnect was named the best privacy tool by the New York Times (2016), Innovation Award winner for Best Privacy and Security software at South by Southwest (2015), listed as one of the 100 best innovations of the year by Popular Science and one of the 20 best Chrome extensions by Lifehacker.
uBlock Origin is NOT an “ad blocker”: it is a wide-spectrum blocker — which happens to be able to function as a mere “ad blocker”. The default behavior of uBlock Origin when newly installed is to block ads, trackers and malware sites — through EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Peter Lowe’s ad/tracking/malware servers, various lists of malware sites, and uBlock Origin’s own filter lists.
uBlock Origin (or uBlock₀) is not an ad blocker; it’s a general-purpose blocker. uBlock₀ blocks ads through its support of the Adblock Plus filter syntax. uBlock₀ extends the syntax and is designed to work with custom rules and filters. Furthermore, advanced mode allows uBlock₀ to work in default-deny mode, which mode will cause all 3rd-party network requests to be blocked by default, unless allowed by the user.
That said, it’s important to note that using a blocker is NOT theft. Don’t fall for this creepy idea. The ultimate logical consequence of blocking = theft is the criminalisation of the inalienable right to privacy.
Privacy Badger blocks spying ads and invisible trackers.
Privacy Badger is a browser add-on that stops advertisers and other third-party trackers from secretly tracking where you go and what pages you look at on the web. If an advertiser seems to be tracking you across multiple websites without your permission, Privacy Badger automatically blocks that advertiser from loading any more content in your browser. To the advertiser, it’s like you suddenly disappeared.
HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox, Chrome, and Opera extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure. Encrypt the web: Install HTTPS Everywhere today.
HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS. Information about how to access the project’s Git repository and get involved in development is here.
This digital footprint, connected by tracking technologies (called trackers), helps companies build a profile about you and how you interact with their sites and competitors, allowing them to optimize their communications and site experience to reach you – at the right place, at the right time. While these trackers power much of the web’s commerce and content, consumers increasingly wonder:
How slow are these trackers making my web experience?
Where is my data actually ending up?
Enjoy a faster web
Some sites take too long to load. This can be due to trackers weighing your system down. Ghostery allows you to block offending trackers and significantly speed up your browsing.
Get the content you want
Remove page clutter so you can focus on the content you want.
Control your data
Sometimes being connected can help you find the data you need quicker, like a location tracker that helps you find the closest cafe. Sometimes it spoils the fun, like a remarketing tracker, revealing the birthday present you wanted kept a surprise. Control your data.
Be Informed, Take Control
Ghostery gives you the tools needed to understand the different types of trackers and how they may impact your overall browsing experience, putting the power directly in your hands.

VTzilla is a Mozilla Firefox browser plugin that simplifies the process of scanning Internet resources with VirusTotal. It allows you to download files directly with VirusTotal’s web application prior to storing them in your PC. Moreover, it will not only scan files, but also URLs.
The scanning options are embedded in Firefox’s context menu and download dialog, making the analysis process as easy as clicking a single button.
VTchromizer is a Google Chrome browser extension that simplifies the process of scanning Internet resources with VirusTotal. It allows you to scan links (including links to files) directly with VirusTotal’s web application. It will scan the submitted URLs with URL analysis tools and the content downloaded from the scanned site with VirusTotal’s antvirus solutions.
Unlike VTzilla, VTchromizer does not embed itself in the browser’s download dialog, only in the context menu. Google Chrome still does not offer an API to modify the download dialog, having said this, you can still scan any file that you want to download by right-clicking on the link to the file and choosing the Scan with VirusTotal option.
